Monocle Cafe Marylebone, London

Monocle Cafe Marylebone is a cute cafe that we ran into on our recent trip to London. We did not have to eat, but could not resist making a coffee stop when we saw it whilst wandering around the Marylebone area.

Marylebone is not an area we are familiar with so we decided to explore it on our trip. The name is familiar because Marylebone Station is one of the railway squares on the Monopoly board. It is a very nice neighbourhood with lots of little shops and restaurants. The Monocle Cafe along Chiltern Road is one such place.

We are familiar with the Monocle Magazine. The magazine that writes about all kinds of topics, such as travel, lifestyle and culture. According to their website, “(o)ur little café in Chiltern Street is the place to pick up the latest issue of the magazine and bump into fellow Monocle readers. As well as delicious Allpress coffee, Swedish pastries and Italian wine, there’s a fresh new lunch menu on offer.”

It is a small cafe with character. There are some seats on the ground floor. There is a basement with more seats but first we had to deal with a steep stairway. It is a windowless place, so we headed back upstairs and took up two spaces next to a window.

Trays of pastries were on the counter. We picked a cinnamon bun to go with our coffee.

Here are pictures of our food, drinks and Monocle magazine at the Monocle Cafe Marylebone. Both the coffee and bun were good. We will probably not go out of our way to eat at this cafe. But it is certainly a nice place we would be happy to pop into whenever we are in the area for a bite to eat.
